Questions nerds often hear about Nest Outdoor Camera
I get a lot of rain/ snow/heat where I live. Will this device survive?
These things are seriously robust! They’re made for the elements.
I own outdoor pets. Will it continually alert me when they’re moving around the house?
This is one of the beauties of smart outdoor cameras! You can configure these devices to recognize pets so that the number of false alerts you get is kept to a bare minimum.
I like the idea of good home security, but will it make my home seem uninviting?
Of course, if you want big and obvious security cameras outside your home, we can do that for you. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The majority of smart security products are small and unobtrusive. Unless you’re looking for them, you’re unlikely to notice them.
How much disruption will there be during installation?
Not a lot! All our technicians are well-trained in installation. They’ll do it quickly and with a minimum of fuss.
